Is Auburn Spinal Traction Face Down Or Face Up Best? Face Down!

Face up? Face down? When handling neck pain or low back pain that is a question for your Auburn chiropractor and for the spine researcher (and occasionally the inquisitive patient!) about which position is most beneficial. For the Auburn back pain specialist who is a hands-on treating doctor, prone (face down) is best so he or she can get his or her hands on the spine. For your Auburn spine specialist, prone is certainly preferred as Cox Technic flexion distraction and decompression spinal manipulation is offered. At Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. prone spinal care is our back pain relief department, and research agrees!


Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. grounds its Auburn chiropractic treatment on research. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. keeps abreast of13 current spinal care research. In a new study of traction, patient-rated disability and pain scores demonstrated that traction in the prone position resulted in immediate and significant improvements. (1) Another study reported that a hallmark of spinal traction could lie in the fluid exchange in the disc as trunk muscle activity is minimal. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees the positives of relaxing the trunk muscles, enhancing the fluid exchange in the disc (as Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows nutrition of the disc relies on this and is why disc nutrition supplementation is regularly recommended as part of the treatment plan), and distracting the spine.


Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. utilizes an exceptional form of spinal distraction called Cox Technic that is research-documented and gentle in its ability to relieve back pain and neck pain.  In applying Cox Technic flexion distraction spinal manipulation for back pain relief, your Auburn chiropractor has you lie prone (face down) on a uniquely designed chiropractic treatment table that has a non-moving chest support piece and mobile support piece for your legs. Researchers document that the proper forces a chiropractor is to apply to the lumbar or cervical spine on this type of table with Cox Technic can be instructed consistently for clinical reproducibility by chiropractors like yours at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.. This indicates that a patient can be treated by one skilled chiropractor in much the same way as by another skilled chiropractor. (3,4,5) Your Auburn chiropractor is trained in this. Applying the appropriate forces allows the best opportunity to replicate the clinical back pain relief for Auburn low back pain patients as chiropractic researchers have recorded in their research studies. That is exciting to your Auburn chiropractor and alleviating to the Auburn chiropractic patients at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.!
